I do not understand why others give this museum a great review. It has an odd collection of bank articles and machines, arrayed in random order, and without any decent signage. Oh and not a docent to be found, ever. So there you are, clueless, and pretty much wandering freely through what could be an amazing museum, but isn't. So... More

This is one of the places you can do in half an hour and combine with other places in Kota. So in itself it is not a place you should make a huge detour for. But if you plan to visit the Old Batavia area, definitely do include this building. I always take visitors and the place still has this... More

VERY interesting! Historicly and a must see, when you are in the old city. It actually consists of 2 big separated buildings, that are both interesting , each of them in their own special ways.

Don't be fooled by the name of this museum as it is not solely about the central bank or the Indonesian financial institutions. It also contains the information regarding the country's struggle against colonialism. I particularly like the section where you can check out the past and present notes of other countries. Also, the building itself is quite well-maintained. If... More

through its collection of bank notes and coins from the various periods of the archipelago's history, the museum is an invaluable mean of learning about the history of Indonesia for the past 3 centuries

Teased by a TV show about this place, I went there sometime last December and turned out to be such a good decision to make. Very well maintained museum, which is rare in Indonesia, this museum tells a lot about a bit of historical puzzle during colonial era of East Indies. A must visit place. Now I have more places...

The collections are really complete, start from ATM machines, calculators, money, stamps, everything! It's a great place to study, taking photos, or just walking around. Bring your kids along, they'll love it!
